Have stayed here 6 times (with parties of 2 -7) as an airport hotel with a couple of days added on to see the Alajuela area. The hotel serves a great breakfast and, if you arrange in advance, an outstanding dinner. The staff has always been very amiable and helpful. I really like Alajuela and most things that you might...

I stayed at Los Volcanes for 5 nights with a friend prior to being picked up for surf camp in Santa Teresa on the 6th day, and then one night on my return from surf camp. Our plan was to use Los Volcanes (and Alajuela) as a bit of a base camp for doing some hiking and sightseeing in the...

Great little B&B right outside of the airport. Friendly staff and owners. Our flight got in about 12:30 am and they were ready to let us in. Comfortable night stay. Awesome breakfast and dinner too. We stayed the first night and in the morning they helped get us a car for the week. When our vacation was over we went...

My family and I stayed here in the middle of March. I chose one of the rooms with no bathroom, and it was across the hall from the hotel desk. It was clean and surprisingly quiet considering the location. The communal bathroom and shower area were also clean. The hotel itself stayed cool, but despite the ceiling fan and window,...

We stayed here 2 nights. The first night that we arrived in CR and the last night in CR. Great central location -- close to the park, cathedral and shopping. Staff friendly and helpful. There is a lovely inner courtyard where you can relax and have meals. We had dinner the first nite and complimentary breakfast the next am. Both...

We highly appreciate your review and are flattered you found our staff helpful and enjoy our meals. Unfortunately , we could not be responsible from people turning their tv early in the morning , we did not notice the lack of courtesy from the person staying across your room. The restaurant we have is just for our guests and is...

The hotel was actually kind of cute, real dark and old, nothing fancy, but very clean. However, I would be careful in regards to your credit card! I question the integrity of the folks running this place. I would not trust them again with my financial info. To summarize what happened to me: 1. They advertise that they take MC/Visa...

Wonderful stay! We spent two night at Los Volcanes on either end of a trip to Osa. Very convenient - close to the airport, clean rooms, friendly staff, great service, wonderful little restaurant. We couldn't have asked for more out of this little oasis of calm in the city. Would definitely stay here again.

This place is different! Be ready! Very cool and amazing breakfast! Close to the airport and great value! Don't be scared. It's like a long narrow house with bedrooms surrounding a courtyard. Beautiful!

I chose to stay at a hotel close to but not next to the airport. Los Volcanes is just off the town's central park, the cathedral, and a major museum of Costa Rican history.
